SKIN ENVELOPE

Solo exhibition at free range gallery.
Nov 27-Dec 5, 2015.

In body theory, “skin envelope” refers to the post-eighteenth-century idea of the body’s margin as an enclosing vessel or garment, with specific openings. Before this the body was often envisioned as a kind of porous sponge, with no clear boundary between it and the world.

Probing these ideas, Skin Envelope was an expanded, performative drawing made up of many small elements: clay objects, embroidery, wall-drawing, tattoo.

All photographs by Alessandro Bianchetti.
